From a background in industrial design, and having a long love affair with glass objects, Vivienne began working in glass more recently. It is a medium that she states never fails to surprise and excite her. “The ‘what if’ element of glass is most compelling, always inviting her to try something new.”

The glass designs take on a three dimensional appearance as you can see through the top layers to what is laying behind. The artist utilises many layers of glass to create interesting designs in her slumped glass shapes.

Vivienne is inspired by the landscape and the fluidity of nature. Having spent her early years in the soft grey tones of England, she feels invigorated by the clear, brilliant hues that surround Western Australia. She is particularly drawn to capture in her work the movement of water, whether in the large swells of the ocean or the ripples in the shallows of a rock pool.
